Here is a summary of the directions. Please view the preview for pictures.


Directions for Recall Round

When you land on a Recall Round space pick a card from the Recall Round stack and pass the question to another player. They will ask you the question. If you answer the question correctly, you get one gold nugget. If you cannot answer the question, you have to return to your previous space.


Directions for Skills Station

When you land on a Skills Station space pick a card from the Skills Station stack and pass the question to another player. They will ask you the question. You may look at the question if they cover up the answer. If you answer the question correctly, you get two gold nuggets. If you cannot answer the question, you have to return to your previous space.


Directions for Who Am I?

When you land on a Who Am I? space pick a card from the Who Am I? Stack. Do not look at it! Hold it up to your forehead so that the other players can read the card. Ask the other players “Yes/No” format questions to guess the famous person on your card. You only have 10 questions, so think before you ask! If you guess your Who Am I? person correctly, you get three gold nuggets. If you cannot guess, you have to return to your previous space.


Directions for Act It Out

When you land on a Act It Out space pick a card from the Act It Out stack. Each card represents an event from US History. You have 3 minutes to quickly act out the event on your card. You may talk and use gestures, but you may not use any part of the title of the event in your Act it Out. When the event is correctly identified, the player that guesses the event receives 1 gold nugget and you receive two gold nuggets. If no one guesses the event, you have to return to your previous space.
